Bad news for Longhorns fans hoping to tie one on during home games this year, after giving some consideration to selling beer and other alcoholic beverages at DKR Memorial Stadium, the school has decided against doing so. At least for this season.

“Not going there,” Francisco Cigarroam, a university chancellor, told the American-Statesman after a Board of Regents meeting. “I mean, we're not going to do it this year.

“(UT President) Bill Powers and I agreed that we really needed more of an experience of selling beer and wine at our basketball games, baseball and track and field.”

Texas had experimented with alcohol sales at a couple of basketball games (one men's, one women's) as well as at Texas baseball games, but the school wants to continue testing the hops and barley waters before diving into the deep end that is beer sales at football games.

So while there won't be beer sold at the stadium this season, the school isn't ruling it out in the future. So until that future arrives, any Texas fan looking to get loaded for a for a football game will have to do so the old-fashioned way: in the parking lot before the game.
